Greek term or phrase: Η Λειτουργία του Εσταυρωμένου
It refers to the liturgy performed in the Orthodox church on Good Friday (Megali Paraskevi). I am not sure whether it is Crucifixion Liturgy of Liturgy of the Passion. Perhaps neither!

the Service of the Crucified One
Explanation:
We are told by documents of the late fourth century that it was the custom in Jerusalem to display the relic of the true Cross at the Church of the Anastasis on Great Friday. The procession of the Cross has become the focal point of the service. Hence in popular language the service is often referred to as the Service of the Crucified One - 'H 'Akolouthia tou 'Estavromenou. More will be said about the procession below.
